I'm having a very difficult time making a final decision on my next headphone purchase. I'm upgrading from the ATH-A900 model, and since I liked the sound signature of that model, I figure it would make sense to stick to the AT brand.
I posted the following thread a few days ago, but I figure it would make more sense to post on the most active high-end AT phone thread on this forum!: http://www.head-fi.org/t/620484/upgrading-from-audio-technica-ath-a900
The W1000X is currently the number one contender for me, but in my obsessive-research-anticipating-buyer's-remorse session, I've run across some complaints that have prevented me from pulling the trigger. Specifically, that this is not a good headphone for more aggressive music (rock, metal, electronica, as opposed to classical/jazz/folk). I listen to "aggressive" and "non-aggressive" music in approximately equal proportions, so it would be a bummer to gimp 50% of my music collection by buying the wrong headphone.
I've also considered the A2000X, but the lack of reviews for it online have prevented me from considering it as strongly as the W1000X.
So, I was curious if anyone had any opinions on the versatility of W1000X vs A2000X or another similar headphone.
It is right that w1000x don't handle rock as good as some others headphones but they are very good for electronica. The trebles are not rolled off so you need to listen to goods recordings to make them shine. By good recordings i'm not saying only .flac even mp3 228 kbps could sound greats
